Boho’s Best Bits: W/C 3rd October – Boho Weddings™ For the Boho Luxe Bride […] Samantha and Adam Jewish Extravanganza – From Todd Hunter McGaw […]

leah and cam.. MoNA magnificence.

Photographing a wedding at MoNA in Hobart has been on my “To Do” list ever since I visited the Gallery first in 2012.. I’ve since been back there 3 times because it’s one of our favourite art galleries on this whole Earthworld – and we’ve been to quite a few..

Now.. Leah & Cam.. They are excellent humans indeed, and excellent people tend to do excellent things in excellent places.. And.. so I made some photographs during their excellent wedding celebrations..


Dear excellent people planning your weddings..

Remember to be IN your wedding day after planning it so excellently, and to roll with the metaphorical punches that may (or may not) come along on the day.. I suggest be like a Bridal Ninja – like Leah was – and use the methaphorical punch’s bad juju energy & turn it into a masterful counter-move to neutralize & stand victorious when your wedding dress’s invisible zip completely fails & after attempts to revive/repair/resurrect said zipper, you call on your friend’s Mum to help sew/stitch you permanently into your dress like a boss.. Then have an excellent wedding, & reception, and after party in the city of Hobart to return to your hotel at 4am when you husband passes out asleep, & your faithful bridesmaid cuts you out of your dress…  (boom!)


Big thanks also to Steve Toga for coming down to Hobarticus to be my second camera.. *two thumbs up bro!*

Rahul @theweddingcardsonline Well, all the pictures are very beautiful and romantic. Other than the beauty and charm of bride & groom, the way and art of clicking the picture has added icing to the cake. These are perfect poses clicked at perfect time. The most important thing is their compatibility. Both of them are looking perfect with each other in love and affection.

One of these picture showing a baby lying down the dining table is funny! It made me laugh a lot.

stacey & glenn.. byron bay + fig tree + party bus!

Really, nothing need be said about Byron Bay – it’s awesomeness is well known & documented.. But… Add Stacey & Glenn, and their excellent friends & family, Fig Tree Restaurant…  and a double decker party bus, and you’ve got a pretty awesome recipe for party to remember!

S&G’s wedding was also recently featured in the amazing Together Journal.. Pick yourself up a copy – it really is a beautiful magazine..

the story of jane and sam, (& digby the dog)..

Jane & Sam… They love life more than most people I think.. They have a contagiously crazy happy vibe around them – you can feel it – it’s like that feeling maybe two seconds before you jump up & start dancing.. It’s compelling, and beautiful..

Their “Wedding Spectacular” was one of the most fun weddings I’ve ever been to..  and believe me when I say, their wedding was “very them”..

Jane & Sam put most of this extravaganza together themselves, but they also had an super team of legends to help.. See below for credits..

aaaaaaannd J&S’s wedding was also featured on the super style blog Hello May, <—- so check it out for more awesome styling pics too!



Team of Legends:

Stylist/Event Planning The Events Lounge  ..:: Florist Rose Apple Flowers  ..:: Jane’s dress (with pockets!) Christina Kim ..:: Food Trucks/Vans Vintage Daisy Days ..:: Wedding Celebrant Benjamin Carlyle ..:: Music/Entertainment North Coast Entertainment ..:: Second Photographer Emma Holcroft

sophie & will..

Happy first wedding anniversary to these legends!

Sophie & Will married each other last August.. They smashed their wedding day to pieces with brutal elegance.. A perfect balance of classic foundations that support a rich tapestry of modern visuals, mixed with an amazingly relaxed atmosphere.. and of course, there was Sophie’s Vera Wang wedding gown..

Such a pleasure to play a part in your wedding Sophie & Will.. Say hi to Archie the Wonder Dog for me too ;)


ps.. S&W’s wedding is also featured over at Junebug weddings.. Jump over there for more tasty wedding goodness!
